Is It worthwhile to send your children to a Christian school? We wholeheartedly say “Yes.” Because whether your children attend public or Christian school, their education shapes them in several ways:

•  Academics
•  Skills
•  Worldview
•  Spirituality

Our vision for students includes the integration of a Biblical worldview into our curriculum where character, values and essential life skills are emphasized and modeled by a professional and dedicated faculty & staff. As a Christ-centered school, students are taught how to integrate Biblical truth and learning into their daily lives to impact the culture for Christ. The study of the Bible is a required part of the curriculum beginning in Preschool and continuing through grade 12. The goal of the curriculum is for students to “grow in wisdom, stature and in favor with God” (Luke 2:40). In the pursuit of wisdom, emphasis is placed on practical application of the Bible, recognizing God calls us to not just be hearers of the Word, but doers as well (James 1:23).

Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg exists to challenge our students’ minds. We believe it is our mandate from the Lord to be excellent in all we do. First and foremost, CAL is a school committed to the learning process. Our goal is to provide each family with a great Christian education. We believe a school can be both academically superior and remain committed to the Christian faith. We strive to accomplish this in every classroom. Our teachers are outstanding at what they do. Over 80% of the Faculty and Staff hold advanced level degrees.

Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg strives to be an intentional Christ-centered community. We are a school and do not want to replace the time families spend in corporate worship at church. We exist to stand beside our parents who are called to be the primary educators of their children in all areas; particularly their Christian upbringing. Overall, the expectation of the school is that parents model a personal pursuit of God marked by an upright character and regular church involvement.
